About The Artist
Marjolein Witteman emigrated with her parents and sister from the Netherlands in 1978. Her interest in watercolours was motivated during her youth by seeing the kitchen table and other tables in the house perpetually covered by paper, paints and paintbrushes, as her mother and sister Annette are also artists.
Moving to Canada at age eight was a grand adventure and a good change from the crowded living space of the Netherlands. But Marjolein continued to be drawn to Europe. After graduating from high school in Penticton, Marjolein lived, schooled and worked in France, Italy, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland and Finland in 1987, 1992 and 1994, complementing her work abroad with a Bachelor of Arts at UBC in Vancouver BC. Her attraction to European architecture kept her artistic focus on the romantic waterways, medieval villages and castles, cobblestone alleyways, old stone city walls, courtyards, and hazy harbours. Her watercolours are hanging in numerous art collections throughout Canada and Europe.
Fast forward 25 years after a period of lean art creation and primarily being busy parenting and promoting the artists of the Lloyd Gallery Marjolein is edging closer to finishing a few series of acrylic paintings featuring the Okanagan Valley landscape. She’s drawn to the light of the Okanagan especially the skies after spring storms. Her ultimate goal is to subtract the details that her past realism held her to and instead work towards a looser, contemporary style.
